Scouting report

CHI WR Darnell Mooney - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 vs. Green Bay Packers

Darnell Mooney finished 4-39 on seven targets last week. It's a similar story to what we've seen from Mooney all year: Lots of targets, little production. His 58.8% catch percentage (receptions vs. targets) is 161st among 195 eligible receivers. Mooney is averaging just 3.3 receptions for 35.9 yards this season, which isn't great. He gets a tough Packers matchup this week, and it's a team he struggled with earlier in the season when he caught just three passes off nine targets for 34 yards. Mooney isn't much more than a WR4 play in Week 17.

CHI WR Darnell Mooney - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 at Jacksonville Jaguars

Darnell Mooney was surprisingly productive last week, finishing 4-49-1 on five targets while adding a run for 16 yards. Mooney has now scored in back-to-back games, but at this point, he mostly needs a score to remain relevant in fantasy. He's averaging just 3.3 receptions for 35.6 yards, which is around what we have projected for him in Week 16. He'll be a TD-dependent WR5 in Week 16.

CHI WR Darnell Mooney - Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 at Minnesota Vikings

Darnell Mooney scored a touchdown last week, but that's about all he did as he finished 2-22-1. Mooney is averaging 3.2 receptions for 34.6 yards this season, which is about what we have projected for him in Week 15. Mooney has a low ceiling, and isn't a recommended play in fantasy. He's not much more than a low-end WR5 in deep leagues.

CHI WR Darnell Mooney - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 vs. Houston Texans

Darnell Mooney finished 4-43 on six targets last week. He's now finished between 30-45 receiving yards in seven of his 12 games this season, while averaging 3.3 receptions per game. That's basically the type of production you can expect from Mooney, who has just two scores on the season. He's not much more than a WR5 despite the favorable matchup against the Texans.

CHI WR Darnell Mooney - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 13 vs. Detroit Lions

Darnell Mooney saw a healthy nine targets last week, but only finished with three receptions for 34 yards. Not converting targets into receptions has been a huge problem for Mooney, who has an ugly 55.4% catch percentage. To put that in perspective, he's 183rd among 205 eligible receivers in that category this season. Mooney has seen an uptick in playing time over the past five weeks, but is only averaging 37.8 yards in that span. He's on the verge of fantasy relevance, but not quite there yet. He's not much more than a desperation WR5 in Week 13 against the Lions.

CHI WR Darnell Mooney - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12 at Green Bay Packers

After an 11-target game in Week 9, Darnell Mooney had a 2-target game in Week 10, finishing with two receptions for three yards. Mooney is averaging 3.3 receptions for 35.1 this season, with just two games above 50 yards receiving. He's pretty consistent for around 30-40 yards, but typically doesn't do much more than that. He's a poor fantasy option this week, especially in a tough matchup.

CHI WR Darnell Mooney - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 vs. Minnesota Vikings

Darnell Mooney saw a team-high 11 targets last week, which is also a season-high for the rookie. He finished 5-43, giving him two games in a row with five receptions. Mooney is starting to get involved in the offense, but his poor catch percentage (57.4%) is holding him back. He's someone who can get you a handful of catches for ~50 yards and not much more. Expect that type of production this week in a favorable matchup against the Vikings where we like Mooney as a low-end WR3.
